“I was married to him for 20 years, I did everything for him and my family. People change and that’s what really happened,”she told TMZ Sports. “Most people can’t even imagine being in a relationship for a week so I know it’s beyond imagination… Cheating wasn’t the problem.”
We recently told you that Lori Harvey was spotted canoodling with a possible new boyfriend in Abou “Bu” Thiam after moving on from her relationship, or situationship (or whatever) with rapper Future. However, she’s not the only one with a possible new companion.
Future has been linked to female rapper Dess Dior, who is captured in the photo above (to the left) with rapper Lil Baby’s girlfriend Jayda Cheaves, a good friend. Future and Dess were originally spotted dining together outside in late October, and though they didn’t seem like they were all over each other, The Blast reported that they were also seen hanging out at a strip club for her birthday last week. There is speculation now that he gifted her the Audemars Piguet watch she sported during her birthday celebration, as he’s been known to buy his girlfriends (sorry, lady friends) pricey diamond watches.
As for Dess, the 22-year-old was born in Savannah, Georgia and raised in St. Louis. According to an interview with Lil Miss Chit Chat, she’s been rapping for quite some time and is interested in working with the likes of Nicki Minaj.
“I’ve been rapping since I was 12,” she said. “I knew I wanted it to make it my career when I seen how my music impacted other people.”
She also models and reportedly is an entrepreneur. She has plenty going for herself, which is great. We’ll see if they’re just collaborating on music, or something else.
Future keeps a pretty lady around him (and keeps many of them impregnated). Hit the flip to learn more about the women he’s loved, been linked to and shared children with. Let’s start with India J (far left)…
The rapper has a daughter, his first, with a woman named India Jones, or India J (pictured above to the right). The child’s name is Londyn Wilburn, and on Mother’s Day this year, he showed her mom some love on Twitter.
“Happy Mother’s Day India..such a great mother and always putting the kids 1st..u keep me sane and I’m forever grateful for u, Thank u.”
That isn’t the first Mother’s Day post she’s received. He shouted her out publicly again in 2017.
“Literally, U deserve everything,” he said. “I’m truly blessed to have u in my life, thanks for being a great mother…I love you.”
The rapper’s eldest child is 18-year-old Jakobi, whom he shares with a woman named Jessica Smith. The two have battled it out over both paternity and child support.
Jakobi has been in legal trouble. He was arrested in January for possession of a firearm with the serial number scratched off. He was charged with criminal gang activity, criminal trespassing and gun possession. And though he was 17 when the incident happened, he could face serious jail time (up to 20 years) due to Georgia charging 17-year-olds and up as adults.
“Our son is a minor and to protect his well being in this trying situation, we ask that everyone please respect our privacy at this time,” Smith told TMZ at the time.
Brittni Mealy shares a son named Prince Wilburn with the rapper, and they have had an on-again, off-again relationship over the years. Back in 2014 when he was with Ciara, Mealy confidently (and correctly) predicted that he would show his true colors to the singer.
“I know the real ‘him,’ the part she doesn’t know,” she told TheYBF.com. “They are just ‘honeymooning’ right now. Everything always seems perfect in the beginning. But, I wish them the best.”
The two seem to co-parent well, though.
“Thanks for holding my PRINCE down Britt, your love for your kids is amazing and I thank u for staying on top of the business,” he said in May as a Mother’s Day tribute to her.
After dating about a year, Ciara and Future announced they were engaged, and soon after, she revealed that she was pregnant. And while things seemed rosy for a while, welcoming their son in 2014, she called the whole thing off months after baby Future’s birth.
“I had to take a couple of times to figure it out, but my dad’s love is what saved me in all my situations, because it would get to a point where I was like, my dad wouldn’t do this to my mom. This can’t be love,” she said on Red Table Talk last year. “I’ve always had the same goal of wanting to be loved a certain way, but I was just walking in the wrong direction.”
There were rumors that Instagram model and fitness enthusiast Aaleeyah Petty and the rapper were an item after she appeared in his video for the song “Blow a Bag.” There were photos of the two rolling around in a Rolls Royce together, which could have been from the video. And while video appearances don’t necessarily equate to a relationship (see Blac Chyna’s cameo in his video “Rich Sex,” all the kissing they were doing, the tattoo of his name she got on her hand, just for him to say he was single), you never really know what people have going on.
While still very much married to NBA legend Scottie Pippen, Larsa risked it all for the chance to mess around with Future. The couple struggled to make their long-time marriage work after that. However, Larsa contended that the pair, who share four kids, had deeper issues during their more than 20 years married than what people have heard.
Dancer (not that kind) and another fitness enthusiast, Joie Chavis (captured in the middle of the photo above) and Future share a son together named Hendrix, whom she gave birth to in 2018. Like Brittni, she too has had an on-again, off-again thing with the rapper. She said a major misconception about her is that she had a baby by him, and also by rapper and actor Bow Wow, to secure herself major funds.
“Another thing is, ‘Oh, she’s a gold digger,’ or ‘she’s just having these babies to secure a bag,'” she said. “I always have worked since I was 15 years old. I don’t know what it’s like to just not do anything. So, I think that’s the biggest misconception, and it doesn’t bother me at all. The people that know me know, obviously, I’m so much more than that. I show that with my actions. I don’t have to scream it out. I show that with my actions and how hard I work.”
Recently named via a paternity test as the mother of his daughter Reign, Eliza Reign (aka Eliza Seraphin) has bumped heads with Future over both paternity and child support. In September it was declared that after she requested a whopping $53,000 a month from him, she would only get $3,200.
Future has also been less than kind about Eliza, claiming she impregnated herself and calling her an “ugly mistake.” SMH.
“People make lies up to make they self feel good,” he wrote on Twitter. “Leave them ugly girls alone… Dnt get high and treat a ugly girl pretty…HUGE MISTAKE. Ugly girls b in imaginary relationships. I told my dog learn frm u… u act jus like u look. I’m frm murder block 22 Kirkwood. Caught me slipping ok so what.”
Most recently, Future was notably dating Lori Harvey, stepdaughter of Steve Harvey and known to be something of a socialite. Unlike many of his previous situations, both Lori and Future went public with their relationship in January during a 23rd birthday trip she took to Jamaica. The two, however, were reported to have ended things around August, unfollowing one another on Instagram and deleting photos of one another.
Randomly, an old video of Lori’s mom Marjorie warning her when she was 18 against dating rappers resurfaced right before she went public with Future.
“I know you just started dating this year, so how are we going to handle that?” Marjorie asked. “No athletes, no rappers, we gon go down the list.”
